    Hey guys, having made my first properly layed out map I loaded it up on my server to show some friends, they all downloaded it and can play on it fine but whenever I try and join the server hl.exe crashes right about where it's almost finished "Retrieving server info."

    I tried deleting the map in my maps folder and redownloading from the server but it either times out whilst downloading or crashes hl.exe again :(

    Anyone have any idea what the cause of this could be and how i could fix it?


    (Can post compile logs if needed but i figured since its working for everyone else its not a compile issue? I dont really know tbh.)

    Does your map have water in it?

    Sometimes this happens to me...
    It's possible that because of compression, the map on the server and on your computer don't quite match.
    Backup your map bsp, and delete it from your tf/maps folder so that it is replenished from the server. You might also have to do this with map assets (I've never gone custom before, I don't know)
